Join us for the Fall 2016 series of the Lind Initiative in U.S. Studies, hosted by the Liu Institute for Global Issues. For our second series, we are bringing high profile speakers to campus to explore the state of U.S. politics as seen through the drama of the 2016 U.S. election campaign. The Lind Initiative Fall Series aims to provoke a national conversation around issues such as hyper conservatism and the widening rifts in the two major American political parties.

The Lind Initiative in U.S. Studies is an annual dialogue series created to address the most urgent issues of our time. The initiative invites prominent American scholars, writers and intellectuals to UBC to conduct research and share ideas with students, faculty and the wider community on a particular theme.
